Nolan's Pop Culture Review

Director Stroman (who also choreographed the film) has also paid tribute to the theatre by casting such stage stars as Brent Barrett, Debra Monk, Karen Ziemba and Andrea Martin.

The real reason to see this film is the addition of the musical numbers -- catchy and clever songs, written in the style of classic 1950s Broadway musicals.

Sacramento News & Review

Stage director Susan Stroman brings it all in, including the high spirits and naughty fun, though a few more dancers in some of the musical numbers might have filled the screen better.

Is it better than the stage version? Not necessarily. But this is a faithful rendition that should succeed in bringing a delightful old-fashioned crowd-pleaser to a new audience.

Arguably the funniest movie of the year.

San Antonio Express-News

It's a broad, slightly naughty comedy in musical form from the skewed, if not a little twisted, comic genius Mel Brooks.

Not great, but still funnier than most other comedies released in 2005.

Laugh til' you drop - the musical version of The Producers is finally here. When Mel Brooks conceived his comedy satire, the subject matter of ridiculing Hitler was brave to say the least. And nearly 40 years later, it still leaves bite marks.

Little more than the show audiences paid to see in New York.

This is a very funny idea, made all the more entertaining by the actors going over the top - Ze show is unjinxable.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

When it works (which is more than half the time), it's because the source material is funny and flamboyant, and the movie is competent in recreating those tones.

Ferrell hasn't been this enjoyably nuts since Old School, proving that his real talent is as an ensemble player rather than a marquee star.

Finally, a Broadway gem made into a film that old-time movie musical fans like me can cheer about!

Not so much a film as an awkwardly framed souvenir of the Broadway hit musical, The Producers needs a live audience like a candle needs oxygen.

All the performers act in big, broad strokes. They create a comic world consistent in its over-the-top qualities and seem to have such a good time doing so that their zany spirit is infectious.

Works on its own terms and is a version of The Producers well worth having.

'Everything is show biz, don't you know,' states Lane, and 'The Producers' evangelizes this message with fundamentalist zeal.

A painted-pink pipe bomb of broad stereotypes that explodes with some big laughs, but takes no risks.
